Exporting library contains no data


Exporting library contains no data


 I'm trying to export an entire library for backup purposes but the content of the resulting mgr file doesn't contain any object of the livrary


How can I save every single object of a specific library ?

Re: Exporting library contains no data

Hi Raphael,


I'm a little surprised the propagation didn't include the objects in the Library...

However, you can add additional objects to export using the first icon on the left in the "Objects" section of the Export window. You can then run a query on all items in the library, and add them to the scope of the export.


Re: Exporting library contains no data

Thanks for your answer...


I'm very surprised too...

Here is the Excecution report: 18841 objects exported


and the content of the mgr file:

Strange, isn't it ?


PS: How could I select all objects of a single library in a query (without doing a seperate query or union-query for every type of object ?)

Re: Exporting library contains no data

Hi Raphael,


This might work: Select [packaged element] Where [Owner Packager]:[library] = &lib


when you run the query, enter the name of your library.


Kind regards,



Re: Exporting library contains no data

Hi Philippe, 


I thought it worked as the number of # exported objects is the same:

	Base		: PSPDesign
***********************************************************\RG\Library BIM.mgr
Library BIM
Exporting 18841 objects

However, the resulting doccument doesn't contain munch of the differents objects specificities.

I will open a case with Mega.


Thanks a lot for you help, it is much appreciated!
